Painting and Decorating Courses

Our Painting and Decorating courses are delivered by tutors with extensive knowledge of the construction industry and their professional expertise is valued by our students. There are excellent facilities, with training areas designed to simulate the working environment. Further Education qualifications include nationally recognised BTEC diplomas.

As a painter and decorator, you would work on a variety of domestic and industrial projects ranging from re-decorating homes to applying heavy-duty finishes to large structures like bridges.
On a domestic job, you would use paint, varnishes and wallpaper to decorate rooms. You would follow the householder’s instructions about choice of colour, finishing texture and wallpaper patterns.

To be a painter and decorator, you should have good practical and creative skills. You will need to be able to work carefully and pay attention to detail. Sometimes you’ll need a good head for heights.

As well as Further Education Painting and Decorating Courses, Apprenticeships are also available, allowing students to earn while they learn, as well as gaining first-hand experience in a construction environment and gaining the relevant training and education required to become a successful and competent painter and decorator. Career pathways may include working on new builds and refurbishments, from small domestic projects to major ones such as public buildings.
